The care our nurses provide is priceless. But of course that care, whilst free for our families, does come at a cost. This year Julia’s House is launching its
Fund a Nurse campaign with the ambitious target of raising enough money to pay for 12 nurses. You can help us fund a nurse by taking part in one of our events or simply donate online.
Our Patron Martin Clunes is backing the campaign. He said:
Julia’s House nurses are amazing. I have witnessed first-hand the difference they make to families struggling to cope. In the hospice and out in the community, they are the trusted extra pair of skilled hands that not only provide parents with respite, but with the confidence to enjoy that time out knowing their precious child is getting the very best care. They are also friendly and fun – a lovely bunch! Fund a Nurse is a great way for the public to get behind the people that make Julia’s House so special.
"Julia's House isn't just about giving parents a break, it's about giving families back the balance and sense of normality they feel they have lost."
"Being a Julia’s House nurse is a bit like being a cross between a childminder and a paramedic! We have lots of fun playing and caring for children – but we have to be ready for absolutely anything."
"We want parents to know all is not lost. With the right support they can still have a good family life. And that's what is at the heart of Julia's House."
